Redding v. Safford Unified School Dist. (9th Cir. - Sept. 21, 2007)

We're apparently strip-searching 13-year old girls in public schools in order to find out whether they have a pill of ibuprophen -- hardly a commonly abused drug -- in their crotch or bra. Judges Clifton and Hawkins think that's perfectly okay. Judge Thomas doesn't.

You gotta have an opinion on this one, no? Even if you don't have a 13-year old daughter.
